Shattered - Review

Shattered by Dani Pettrey is a mystery that will keep you in suspense from the first page until the very last word.

Piper McKenna is so happy that her brother Reef but trouble is following him.  A fellow athletic is dead and he is suspected of murdering her. Can Piper prove his innocence? Or did he do it?  Piper will find out.

Landon Grainger is a deputy in Yancy, Alaska.  A friend of the family doesn’t seem to matter when he has a job to do.  With Reef in jail will Landon seek the truth?

Shattered is the second book in Dani Pettrey’s, The Alaskan Courage Series.  Although this book can be a standalone I not only enjoyed the mystery but I also enjoyed the romance between Piper and Landon.  Since I have already read the third book, which I don’t ever read out of order, it seemed to be that much more enjoyable.  Now I need to read the first book, Submerged to meet the family that I have fallen in love with.

Katie's Song - Review

Kate Weaver is Amish by birth and she knows that God has given her a beautiful singing voice

Kate’s Song by Jennifer Beckstrand is a wonderful story that shows a love for family and being able to utilize a God given talent to please others sometimes can be misconstrued between each other.

Kate has come back to Apple Lake broken and needing to find herself. Nathaniel King is a friend from way back and they once again become important to each other. But can love win out when a misunderstanding stands in the way?  Kate knows that God will always be by her side.

This is the first book by Jennifer that I have read. It is also the first of a three book series about three cousins from Apple Lake whom you meet in this first book and will get to know separately in the other books. I found the characters to be believable and looking forward to getting to know the other cousins.

I was fortunate to meet Jennifer Beckstrand at a book signing near my hometown and enjoyed getting to know her.  Love the beautiful cover of this book.  Can't wait to read more of this fresh incredible new author to me.
